Q: Who runs the Picture Kentucky Workshop? A: The workshop was created and is operated by the Kentucky Kernel, a non-profit media organization of student publications at the University of Kentucky. David Stephenson is the workshop director.
Q: Who can attend the Picture Kentucky Workshop? A: The workshop is intended primarily for Kentucky Kernel students, KRNL students and University of Kentucky journalism students. We anticipate also having students from Kentucky State University join us. If we have space, other students may attend and we can allow non-students to attend the workshop. Please inquire in you are interested.
Q: Do I get class credit for attending the PKY workshop? A: The answer is “maybe.” The workshop is available for class credit as an elective if you are a journalism student and it will fit your degree requirements. You can register for JOU 497 Picture Kentucky Workshop through controlled enrollment and earn 2 credit hours. You also have the option of taking a JOU 497 Picture Kentucky Publications Workshop course after the regular workshop and earn an additional 1 credit hour. Contact David Stephenson for more information.
Q: What is the PKY Publications Workshop? A: After the workshop, a class will meet at UK once a week for 6 weeks to produce a book, or website, or some combinations of publications using the material generated by the workshop participants. Publications workshop participants do not have to attend the regular workshop. Publications workshop participants do not need to enroll in the JOU 497 course in order to attend but you will still need to sign up.
Q: How much does it cost to attend? A: It depends. Tuition will be set in the near future but we expect it to be $250 or less. If you are taking this as a UK Journalism class, you will not pay the workshop tuition. Students will be responsible for the food and lodging expenses. We have a group rate at a local hotel. More information will be available in September.
